Apparently, it was Nyondo’s wish to be “laid to rest in his birth land,” family sources revealed.

Nyondo’s body is yet to be repatriated to Malawi from South Africa where he breathed his last at Steve Biko Hospital.

President Peter Mutharika has reportedly declared that the Government of Malawi will, through the High Commission in South Africa, cover the full costs of the repatriation of the body.

Family sources added that an undertaker has been identified, and is currently organizing necessary documentation to fly the body in to Malawi on Wednesday.

A memorial service, courtesy of CCAP Synod of Livingstonia’s Reverend Munthali was conducted at the late Nyondo’s house on Sunday. Another is expected to be conducted in Pretoria East before the repatriation of the body.

In Malawi, family and friends are assembled at Mr. Blair Nyondo’s house in Area 47, Lilongwe

Fiskani, brother to the deceased, had told Nyasa Times earlier that the “funeral arrangements” would be announced in due course.

But date for his burial is still not yet known.

Nyondo succumbed to lung cancer and had been “in and out” of hospital, according to Fiskani.

Born in 1968, the South Africa and United States lawyer he is survived by his wife Brenda and three children.
